Please join us for a brief meeting on Friday, June 19 at 8.30am in the Auditorium to learn what it means that PS 321 is now a PROSE school and to vote on a couple of calendar changes for the 2015-2016 school year. This week Chancellor Carmen Farina announced the expansion of the PROSE (Progressive Redesign Opportunity Schools for Excellence) initiative to include 126 schools, including PS 321. PROSE is a joint UFT/DOE initiative that allows schools more flexibility than they have had in the past. Our SLT has endorsed our PROSE proposal as has our staff. As part of our PROSE initiative, we are proposing a few changes in the school calendar that must be voted on at a PTA meeting. Liz Phillips will talk about the rationale behind these changes and give you an overview of our PROSE proposal.
